1. I have a laptop with XP Media Center edition and a desktop with XP
Professional. Both are connected wirelessly to the internet through a router.
I have made them both part of the same workgroup, but cannot see the shared
folders of one from the other.

2. I tried linking both with a simple Ethernet cable, forced IP addresses
for both Ethernet cards and tried pinging one from the other. This did not
work either.

Sharing folders is very critical for me to avoid transfering data using CDs
or flash drives. Please help.
